Welcome to Reception Class.

Spring 2022

Over the next term our learning themes will be  Transport and Our Amazing World.   

We will learn more about transport and the different types of transport used locally. We hope to get out and visit the train Station.  We will be developing our drawing skills and creating maps of journeys.   After half Term We will be learning about our planet and how it fits into the Solar System.  We hope to look at different environments around the world and make some comparisons between them.   



The children are making excellent progress with their reading.  Your input at home is really appreciated, please take the time to share books with the children and make a comment in their reading diaries.   Reading with your child 3 times a week will make a huge difference to their reading.   


We will continue our Maths learning following the NCETM Mastering Number programme. 


This Term we will be using our new Phonics Scheme Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised.  More information on this to follow 


We will be focusing in on letter formation and writing simple captions and sentences. 


Thursday mornings we will work on our gross motor skills on the large apparatus, please can children wear their PE Kits on Thursdays.  

Forest School 

This will continue on Monday afternoon.  Make sure children have warm clothing as we will be outside whatever the weather!
